Tombstone Vegetarian Crispy Nuggets in a Halloween Graveyard

It takes 5-10 minutes to prepare and a cooking time of 15 minutes. This dish will serve 3-4 people.


One Sweet Potato (the earth)
A packet of Quorn crispy nuggets (the tombstones)
Spinach (the grass)
Black Food Colouring Pen

Additional ingredients include chopped mushrooms as rocks or stones!

Cooking Instructions

Pre-heat the oven to 200C.

Prepare the sweet potato and cut it into cubes. Boil for 15 minutes.

Cook the crispy nuggets for 15 minutes as per the Quorn packet instructions.

Drain the sweet potato and mash.

Wilt the spinach for 2 minutes in boiling water.

Decorate the Quorn crispy nuggets as tombstones with a food colouring pen. We used black for the RIP lettering.

Layer the wilted spinach (the grass) on a bed of sweet potato (the earth) and put in the crispy nuggets standing up like tombstones. We left one grave without spinach to look like it was freshly dug!

Enjoy and have a great Halloween!
